RE: Editing/Viewing attachments (mainly Word and Excel) directly on server without the need to download locally

Dear,

 

That’s true. You need to build your own Nextcloud / Alfresco… Not simple.. And then you have to maintain that… with some changes in the Python CMIS library so now and then, and with changes in basic models of Odoo each year ( even after 14 versions, Odoo seems still not to know how a customer, product, invoice, sales or accounting line object must be, so Odoo keep on changing these, want is a big pain ! ). Success ! We have worked a year on a solution and stopped the project because the result was not what we had hoped… )

 

With kind regards,

Looking for alternatives I found these 2 articles that summarize exactly what I would need:

https://mikekaganski.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/first-blog-post/

https://mikekaganski.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/integrating-libreoffice-with-sharepoint-part-2/

 

So the alternatives (protocol - wise) that I can see are (talking about editing in desktop version of LibreOffice / MS Office):

  • WebDAV

  • CMIS

I have been looking for WebDAV already and mentioned it in initial email. Looking for CMIS I found this: https://github.com/OCA/connector-cmis

 

However that is for integration with external CMIS server such as Alfresco. So I would need to implement CMIS server as Odoo module to achieve what I want. Will research that.

 

Best regards

 

Radovan
